  • 5 tablespoon Oil or ghee enough for shallow frying
  • ½ cup Leftover cooked rice
  • 1 cup Baby Spinach
  • ½ cup Frozen corn kernels
  • Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon Garam Masala powder
  • 1 cup Bread crumbs use gluten free, if needed


  • Blanch the spinach and keep aside. Cook the corn well in some water, drain and keep aside.
  • Mash the rice well with the spinach and corn and add the salt, pepper and garam masala. Mix well. It should form a thick enough dough that will hold for shallow frying, if not add a little more rice or some of the bread crumbs and mix.
  • Take about a lime size ball of the dough, pat on your palms to for a small pattie. Drench in bread crumbs. Repeat with the rest of the dough and keep aside.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil or ghee in a saute pan on medium heat.
  • Place the patties in the oil. Let it cook on each side for 2-3 mins or so until it becomes golden brown.
  • Drain on paper towels and serve.
